Our Jewish community came together tonight to mark this Shabbat as the night we put aside our sadness and shared this evening with a wonderful ,young family who included all of as family in their celebration.
The kids did a great job, but we all knew they would. The Sisterhood did a great job, but we knew they would. What we didn't know would happen is that we all just felt so good to be there .
For those of us who attend Shabbat services almost every Friday and for those who came because of the B'nai Mitzvot ,it didn't matter, we were all there because it is never too late to share in a family Simcha.
